Race 1 and 2 were entertaining. Still have to watch race 3.

And yes track limits....

Or Sonoma.
But NASCAR is NASCAR.

It's not only WTCR but you see it in more series.
You can't blame the drivers when the officials don't care.
Has also to do with tarmac runoff areas.

They just let it go usually in NASCAR, apart from the odd oval

The talk about track limits has got dull beyond belief. Just have grass or whatever so drivers can’t necessarily gain an advantage, you can’t blame them when there’s no proper deterrent

Seems that the last race in Aragon will be run on a different layout:
https://www.fiawtcr.com/wtcr-title-s...n-karl-vernay/

“The new track layout will change a bit what happens because it will be better for everyone and the Honda will be much quicker, also with the drop of 30 kilos. The Hyundai will again be competitive so it will be much more tight.

Let's hope it provides good racing. It's an interesting circuit, hopefully we'll see plenty of different cars up there. It should be a good title fight. Looking forward to it

Congratulations to Yann! Sadly didn't get to see any races this year but from what I've seen of him he's a deserving champion.

Still think the whole 'king' idea is painfully bad.

Nothing wrong with Errlacher as champion although (out of my head) I rate Guerrieri higher but he had a few DNF's because of technical problems.

In race 2 lot of door against door racing.
Shame Guerrieri was already out after one lap.

Good to see Ehrlacher champion but he can improve a lot!

It was a good season but not as competitive as the last two (2018-2019). And for sure the Hyundai this year were highly uncompetitive!

Yep.


Really, really strange season. Only six round on five circuits, BOP was bigger mess than normally, let's hope we can have bigger grid next year.
